Description of problem:
Settings menu does not have buttons to accept or close
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start pmchart
2. Select "Edit" ==> "Preferences"
3. Settings menu popup appears
4. No way to accept or cancel changes or close
No way to accept or cancel changes or close popup
Buttons to accept or cancel changes and to close popup
Changes to preferences are made immediately, so an "OK" or "Accept" button would be a bit misleading / superflous. The dialog can be dismissed via the regular "close window" box (via the window manager), but clearly this is not sufficiently user-friendly. IIRC, this model was done to be compatible with Mac OS X usual preference handling, at the time.
I guess a "Close" button would help to address the usability issue, and give an indication too that changes are applied immediately. I'll make a note to add that in for the next release.
Thanks for reporting the problem!
